In this episode of Resist and Reboot we talk to Vino Lucero who is the Project and Communications Coordinator at EngageMedia in Manila, The Philippines. Vino talks about journalistic freedom, the technological response to the COVID-19 pandemic, and the general state of human rights in The Philippines.

This conversation particularly focuses on two emerging issues surrounding the technological response to this pandemic: 1. privacy and data protection, and 2. proliferation of misinformation and disinformation online and in other media. Vino shares examples of improper data practices, inappropriate deployment of technology, and the overlaps between his work as a journalist and a human rights activist.
